Year 7 Catch Up

Funding for 2017 -18 was £12,396

Building on the success of the strategies used in 2016 - 2017 targeted Group Support strategies were again funded for those identified in Year 7 as needing boosters to improve their attainment in English and Maths. Students also receive personalised support. Year 7 students for whom the school received Catch Up Premium are again in receipt of both group and personalised support. There is an overlap between the support provided for PP students and CUP students as much of the support required is common to both groups. Hence funding from both sources can be used to achieve the same ends – improved numeracy and reading.

Personalised Support

  • Reading Recovery programme
  • Scribing / Readers for termly assessments in core subjects
  • Additional 1:1 reading time, using peer mentoring as well as school staff.
